yzf600r fuse issues

Bike is a 96 yamaha yzf600r. Recently for a month or so now I have been having some strange electrical gremlins that are just driving me nuts. Today while riding I had the fuse for the dash lights/headlights poped 3times on my way back from galleria. I have also had the tach/turn signal fuse blow on me in the past as well. What would be the cause of these. Has to be a short somewhere right? But if it was a short it would do it right after the fuseis put in. Sometimes it will last a week or day or and hour. It just randomly does it. What would cause this or what should I look for? How would I go by troubleshooting it.

U could have a light in ur speedocluster that has blown and causing a short. Of may not be a hard short and may have high resistance and just take a while to get hot enough to actually short out and pop a fuse. It could be a loose connection to whatever is in the fuses circuit. Try checking all the connections and bulb sockets for dirt, rust ect

Check the wiring, especially around the routing of the steering head.
Is any of it pinched or the insulation rubbed bare?
Has the bike ever been wrecked?

I haven't noticed any bare wires anywhere right off I will go look it over in a bit.

Is been wrecked once but it was just cosmetic on the fairings and stator cover(cover been fixed)

I am thinking it's in the turn signals maybe, the left one blinks faster then the right but all the lights work. I do have one back light in the speedo burnt out though.
